Nightcrawler Cosplay by KMCgeijyutsuka Nightcrawler Cosplay by KMCgeijyutsuka
Nightcrawler! YAY!

This is a costume that fell together on a whim because someone on a costuming forum was selling theirs! The guy just so happened to have my measurements, and the costume was super cheap, so I had to jump on it! The makeup wasn't that much different than drow make up as for as coverage so it was relatively easy to do.

Chad and I attended Free Comic Book Day this past weekend and this was the first time I had worn the costume. I was happy with how it turned out but I wish my hips were a little bit more slender. ^^;

This may seem like a weird request, but do you still have this costume, and would you be interested in selling it? I LOVE how it looks

Hi there! Yes, I do still have it, but I actually still wear it frequently. It's quite possibly one of my favorite costumes, and I'm hoping to revamp it this year at DragonCon by adding 'pirate accessories' and 'little bamf plushies' attached, just as Nightcrawler appears in the recent 'resurrection' comic issues. Because of that, I really don't think I will be wanting to sell it anytime soon. I'm really glad you love it so much though! Thank you very much for the compliments!

Daaaang, that's a good cosplay. I love your hair. All you need are some yellow contacts!

Thank you so much! I'm really glad you like it! And yes, that's my next investment... some yellow contacts. I've only just been able to get my eyes to adjust to wearing contacts recently though, so I've got plans to get some yellow circle lenses in the near future.

That makeup is great!
I've seen a lot of Nightcrawler cosplays that would have been great- except that the makeup is some horrible shade of blue, or isn't applied evenly at all D:
But this is awesome!

I second Ebillan, and as a semi stage makeup nerd, what brand/kind of makeup did you use?

I used something called "Graftobian Disguise Stix" for this application. You can apply it by wetting the stick with water and smearing it on or by wetting a brush and wiping it over the stick, then painting it on. It's got great sticking power through the day on me, but then washes off easily enough with soap and water when the time comes. 

Keep in mind that while it sticks great on me (I have oilier skin) it has never adhered so well on my husband (he has dryer skin.) So you might want to keep that in mind just in case. I have recently switched to something else though called "Mehron Paradise AQ" www.mehron.com/Paradise_Makeup…  hat comes in a cake and paints on with a brush. It works similarly, but is more weightless and not as 'thick' feeling when it's on.

Awesome, thank you! I use a lot of Mehron, and I've heard of Graftobian, so that's really cool.

Yeah, sticks are much more convenient for faster, large-area application!

Thanks for the help, much obliged! ^_^
